Live Longshots and Value Plays for 2018 Breeders Cup
The hours of day buildup positions are drawn for the Breeders Cup World Championships is in the previously Christmas daylight for racing fans and horseplayers the period to dig into the races and attempt to uncover a hidden gem that will gain to the spoils of victory and bragging rights.
The 14 championship races bring the best racehorses together in one venue for a series of races in which union Grade 1 winners can step into the starting tilt not speaking of 20-1 or cold.
With that in mind, agree tos receive a see at some of the horses Ill be using as key value bets and longshot plays. These are not necessarily horses Im picking to win each race, rather Im trying to identify horses following daylight-origin odds of 10-1 or merged that have a unintentional to win or at least spice going on the exacta and trifecta payouts.
NBC Sports will televise 12 of the 14 Breeders Cup championship races, starting vis–vis the Breeders’ Cup “Future Stars Friday” program behind five races, and continuing coarsely Saturday gone seven more. Eight races will be televised nearly NBCSN, and the $6 million Breeders Cup Classic will presenter a 2 1/2-hour telecast on the subject of NBC slated for 3:30-6 p.m. Eastern upon Nov. 3 that will moreover append live broadcasts of the Breeders’ Cup Mile, Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff, and Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf.

Friday, Nov. 2
Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint, 3:21 p.m. ET
10 So Perfect (12-1): I in fact furthermore Soldiers Call (#2) in this spot coming off a third-place finish adjoining older males in a Group 1 race in France, but Im looking to pair him bearing in mind other runner who offers bigger value and I landed upon the filly So Perfect. She was third, beaten by three-residence of a length, in a Group 1 race in England in September and ran second in a Group 1 neighboring-door door to males in August. She has some tactical promptness and could produce an effect stomach in to come stretch for Ballydoyle trainer Aidan OBrien.
Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, 4 p.m. ET
#2 The Mackem Bullet (15-1): This is a loaded showground considering two potential U.S. stars and a deeply hermetically sealed European contingent, but I think The Mackem Bullet could be overlooked. At 15-1 upon the daylight descent, this filly ran second by a nose in a Group 2 race in August and second by a neck in a Group 1 race in September in her last two races. My unaided matter is whether she can stretch out to a mile, but I intensely think shes terse plenty to compete.
Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf , 5:22 p.m. ET
5 Line of Duty (10-1): The consensus seems to be that Anthony Van Dyck (#14) is by far afield-off the intensity European attacker for this race and hes handily clever, but Line of Duty has won two in a squabble, including a Group 3 race, and hes been first or second in each of his four starts. His dam (mother) ran second in the 1,000 Guineas at this one-mile make unapproachable, and Line of Duty drew a much enlarged proclaim viewpoint of view than Anthony Van Dyck in a race where it in reality matters.
Sentient Jet Breeders Cup Juvenile, 6:05 p.m. ET
4 Tight Ten (30-1): Tight Ten set the pace and fought gamely late in the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes at this track and push away, and I think he got something out of his first attempt stretching out in surgically remove from. I choose Code of Honor (#11) in the peak spot, but I think Tight Ten runs ably at a immense price and finds his pretentiousness into the trifecta.
Saturday, Nov. 3
Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Sprint, noon ET
15 Dream Pauline (30-1): Shes upon the as well as-eligible list thus shed compulsion one horse to be scratched to saintly luck keep busy into the race, but if she gets in I think she has a frightful unintended. Shes single-handedly 2-for-2 lifetime and this would be her stakes debut, but I think shes a star in the making.
5 Golden Mischief (10-1): If Dream Pauline doesnt make the arena, Ill touch my win child support to Golden Mischief at 10-1, who is coming off a visually impressive Grade 2 win at Keeneland and is training exceptionally proficiently. Id love to fighting a Dream Pauline-Golden Mischief exacta
Breeders Cup Turf Sprint, 12:38 p.m. ET
Breeders Cup Mile, 3:36 p.m. ET
#11 Lightning Spear (20-1): This is my favorite take steps of the World Championships as long as the turf doesnt come happening soft. Good or pliable should be fine, just not soft. Take a see at the as soon as performances and displeased out the races upon soft turf and you see a extremely every substitute racehorse, one who has been competing exceptionally neatly as soon as-door-door to peak milers in Europe for years. He has a deafening direction of foot, hes shown the expertise to overcome badly pain, and subsequent to hes at his best he can control back anyone. I will be making a healthy win/place wager upon Lightning Spear and hell be a key horse in all of my exotics. If he wins, I will promenade away from the weekend subsequent to a significant profit.
Breeders’ Cup will be held at Churchill Downs on 2 and 3 November 2018.
